1 Striking WEEK SIX THIS SET OF LESSONS PROVIDES games and activities to help children develop kicking skills, fitness, strength, body awareness, eye hand coordination, and adaptive skills (following directions, imitating motor movements).

2 Overview Lesson Plans (Day One, Day Two, Day Three) provide details to help you plan and carry out the Young Athletes program with a group of children between the ages of and 7 years old. Adults Needed: Plan for at least 1 adult for every 4 children. Recruit help from families, volunteers, older students, college students and others in your community to make sure the program runs smoothly and is fun. Time: Young Athletes is implemented with great enthusiasm, high energy and quick pace. Time estimates are provided to guide completion of each lesson in 0 minutes. However, the pace and length of the lesson should be matched to the needs, interests, ages, and skills of the young athletes in your group. Sequence: There are three lessons for each skill area labeled Day One, Day Two and Day Three. Lessons within the skill area are designed to be offered in sequence to help children become acquainted with the activities and build skills through repetition. Resources: The Lesson Plan Summary Cards include an outline of the activities, list of equipment needed, and page numbers to find the activity descriptions. The cards, Young Athletes Activity Guide, Suggestions from Teachers, and training videos are included in the online Toolkit (see website below). Playing at home: Give families the Lesson Plan Summary Cards and encourage them to sing the songs and play one or two games with their child at home before the next session. Help them learn about the activities by including them in your group sessions and/ or providing a family training session. Be sure they have access to the Activity Guide and Videos for more information. >> See the Young Athletes Toolkit online at: Favazza, P.C., Zeisel, S., Parker, R., & Leboeuf, L. (011). Young Athletes Curriculum. Special Olympics International, Washington, DC.
